[solved] MX Package Installer - hp printing extras

#1 Postby Eadwine Rose » Mon Jan 22, 2018 9:05 am

I am working on installing the january snapshot of MX17, and I just now saw that hp printing extras is not in the package installer anymore.

I searched on the forum but couldn't find anything on that... is there a particular reason why that was removed? If not.. can it be put back, please?

its supposed to still be there as "HP Printing".

Could you provide a screenshot of your mx-pi popular apps tab?

Searching for "HP" or even "print" leaves the results all blank.

I do believe it used to be in the Office subsection. Here is the screenshot of that:

Ok, we will look into it. there should be a "Printing" category, but that isn't present either.

The file was recently updated, so there is probably some kind of problem with the pm file.

Just checked my local repo...and checked MX-Linux/mx-packageinstaller-pkglist...it is there...the category: Printing

But obviously not in the currently updated package...

Checked the pm file but can't see anything obvious, DO.
Would it have thrown an error when it was packaged?
Is there a limit on the length of the description perhaps?

EDIT: Eliminated & and () in HP Printing and shortened description...pushed changes 13:01

MX-16 still has a "Printing" category with MXPI.

mxpi-printing-mx16.png


And these are what's installed for mx-packageinstaller and mx-packageinstaller-pkglist on my MX-16 install

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy mx-packageinstaller?
mx-packageinstaller:
  Installed: 17.12+5
  Candidate: 17.12+5
  Version table:
 *** 17.12+5 0
        500 http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/ mx15/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
mx-packageinstaller-pkglist:
  Installed: 18.02mx16
  Candidate: 18.02mx16
  Version table:
 *** 18.02mx16 0
        500 http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/ mx15/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


But it looks like the MX-17 repo is still pointing to the 18.01.09 version in it's package list http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/dists/stretch ... 4/Packages

the versions between mx16 and mx17 are different. 18.01.09 is the latest for mx17.

basically I accidentally bumped the mx16 package incorrectly last time.

@ER, change should be in Wed update...we think an errant "&" in the description caused packaging to burp on the entry.
